From cheesy jokes to the best hugs, dads are the superheroes of today. As Father’s Day approaches, it can be hard to express just how much you appreciate his strength and support. While patterned ties and gift cards are undoubtedly thoughtful and perfect last-minute options, why not go beyond the basic this year? After all, the dads in your life are anything but basic. Depending on his interests and personality, here are some out-of-the-box gifts that will surprise and delight (and don’t require a windsor or four-in-hand knot) this Father’s Day.
Summer travel can mean plenty of time in airports. If you make it to your gate early (major kudos to you) or find yourself hungry during a long layover, it’s totally natural to salivate while passing a Dunkin’ Donuts or be tempted by the familiar scent of McDonald’s fries.

While we recommend packing your own food (AKA leftover Cali’flour pizza), we also understand that early take-off times and jet-setting with toddlers doesn’t make planning ahead feasible.
